2016 Festival of Textiles Event at Lang Pioneer Village

” Established in 1967, Lang Pioneer Village Museum is an outdoor museum that features over 25 restored and recreated buildings typical of a small 19th century village.  Costumed interpreters roam the picturesque village demonstrating the life and trades of a settler in the 1800″s.  Many of the buildings were relocated to the Village from within Peterborough County in order to preserve the region’s history.  Lang Pioneer Village nestles the shores of the Indian River and boasts a fully operational Grist Mill and a newly designed Weaver Shop which houses one of only a handful of authentic Jacquard looms on display in North America.”

The Lang Pioneer Village hosted their 5th Anniversary of the Festival of Textiles on Sunday, August 14, 2016.  In the future, the formerly bi-annual event, will become an annual event due to the success of the event as well as the fact that the featured Jacquard loom is working.  The Festival of Textiles is a celebration of textile traditions as well as the innovative work of today’s textile artists.  Demonstrations and displays from local artists and guilds working in textile traditions today were on hand.

The Embroiderers’ Guild of Peterborough was pleased to be a part of this celebration.  We had many visitors to our display who showed interest in our work and interest in joining our Guild.  A couple of visitors even put some stitches into our community cloth.
